SATURDAY'S GAME - WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

JACKSONVILLE - The Sharks are back! We're ready to rock Sea Best Field for our 2014 home opener against the San Antonio Talons, which kicks off at 7:00 on Saturday, March 29. We hope to see you at Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena as we continue our quest for a fifth straight South Division title!

This is the first of two meetings between the Sharks and Talons this season, as we'll make the trip out to San Antonio in Week 17. The Sharks will be out for revenge, as the Talons took the only matchup last year.

Whether you are a longtime Season Ticket Holder or about to head to your first Sharks game, please see below for a rundown of what to expect at the Shark Tank on Saturday!


SNL Night

Our first theme night of the year is "SNL Night!" Throughout Saturday's game, we will pay tribute to the legendary sketch comedy franchise that has spanned generations. Be on the lookout for clips from some of your favorite skits!


Season Ticket Holder Item Pickup

Sharks Season Ticket Holders will be able to pick up their Tailgate Chairs, Parking Passes and Lanyards at Saturday's game. We will have two separate pickup areas, please see below for more details.

Tailgate Chairs will be available for pickup in the "cage", located downstairs in the main lobby of the arena. Tailgate Chair pickup will be available from when doors open through the end of the first quarter, and will then reopen near the end of the third quarter.

Parking Passes and Lanyards will be available for pickup on the main concourse, across from the Merch Stand behind Section 106. When coming up the main escalator, the pickup area will be on the right. Please note that there will be separate tables for Lot J and Lot Z parking passes. This pickup area will be open from when doors open until just after halftime.


Attack Dance Team Calendar

The 2014-15 Attack Dance Team Calendar will be unveiled on Saturday night! Stay in your seats at halftime as we reveal which dancer made this year's cover. Calendars will be on sale at our Merch Stand AFTER the calendar cover is revealed. Be sure to pick up your copy, as a limited quantity will be available.


Sharks Happy Hour

We're offering a Happy Hour special for Shark fans. From 5:30-6:30, 16 oz. cans of Pabst Blue Ribbon (PBR) will be discounted to $5 each. Be sure to arrive early and grab a cold one!


SharkFest

We're ready to kick off the night at SharkFest! Check out our pre-game block party just outside the front entrance of Sea Best Field. Many of our corporate partners will be on hand, so be sure to stop by their displays and support the businesses that support the Sharks. It's all set to begin at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, but please note that inclement weather may impact the exact nature of SharkFest.


Florida-Dayton Game

We will be showing the Elite 8 basketball game between the Florida Gators and Dayton Flyers on television monitors throughout the main concourse. If you're a Florida (or Dayton!) fan, come on out to the Shark Tank and enjoy both their game and ours with 10,000 of your closest friends!


Doors Open

On Saturday, doors will open at 5:30 p.m. for season ticket holders and 6:00 p.m. for the general public.
